ecent events in Iraq and in some other Islamic Paradises, like Darfur, Pakistan, Bangladesh,
is unfolding a bizarre picture of Islam—the picture of cannibalization of
Islam! Bereft of any sensible reasons, the Muslims are killing Muslims! How is
this unthinkable possible?—we might wonder in awe. After all, Islamic killing really means wanton murder of the
infidels, as had been amply demonstrated by 9/11, Bali, Madrid, Jakarta, 7/7 and
many other episodes of horrendous Islamic genocides.
quenched, to some extent, its thirst for infidel blood, it appears that Islam is
now turning on itself. After all, now-a-days, it is gradually becoming more
difficult to murder infidels in large number—as the kafirs have, slowly, but surely become smarter, and have learnt
their bitter lessons vis`-a vis` Islam. They are now fully alert, cautious,
stern and decisive in combating Islamic terrorism. We no longer hear President
George Bush exhorting, ‘Islam means peace’, neither does Tony Blair say,
‘Islam is tolerant’. Instead, these kafir
leaders are now loud and clear—saying without hesitation, ‘Islam is an evil
ideology’ used by the terrorists. These infidel lands are now busy enacting
tough legislations to call ‘spade a spade’. What we have been writing for
many years, is, finally being heeded by these infidels. This is good for them,
and is surely good for the entire humanity. But this is not at all good news for
Islam cannot blissfully thrive without red hot blood—the human blood. As a car
cannot run without petrol, so is Islam. The fuel that propels Islam is blood.
When infidels’ blood is difficult to shed, Islam spills its own blood. Blood
is the life-line of Islam, violence its hallmark, hate its foundation.
Therefore, when needed, Islam must cannibalize itself, just to run its own
course, set by Muhammad, the last Prophet.
cannibalism is nothing new in Islam. Islamic history is profusely replete with
many such savage anecdotes of cannibalization.
the last few decades we have witnessed much such Islamic cannibalism. The most
recent event was the Iran-Iraq war, in which millions of Muslims were killed,
not by the infidels (kafirs) but by
Muslims. Undoubtedly, in not-too-distant a future, we are bound to witness many
such events of Islamic cannibalism.
shall illustrate a few such cases of Islamic cannibalism as was perpetrated
during the nascent stages of Islam, and ponder if we could learn few a few
lessons from those gruesome episodes.
earliest example of Islamic cannibalism, strangely, is found in the Holy
Qur’an, in verses 9:108-110! These verses refer to the gutting of a rival
mosque on the instruction of none but Muhammad (pbuh) when he was returning
after his expedition to Tabuk, a resorceful town in the Syrian-Byzantine
territory. This Islamic incursion story goes like this:
Destruction of an Opposition Mosque at Dhu Awan by Muhammad--April, 631CE
Proceeding further from Tabuk on his way
to Medina, Muhammad halted at Dhu Awan at Quba (about 4 kms. from Medina), an
hour’s journey from Medina. There, an opposition Muslim group had built a
mosque. Previously, while Muhammad was making preparations for the march to
Tabuk, this group of Muslims approached him and said, “O Messenger of God, we
have built a mosque for the sick and needy and for rainy and cold nights, and we
would like you to visit us and pray for us.” (Tabari, vol.ix, p.61). As
Muhammad was too busy with his preparations for Tabuk expedition, he excused
himself from visiting this newly-built mosque but assured the dissident group
that he would call on their mosque while returning to Medina (from Tabuk).
When Muhammad halted at Dhu Awan, he
accused its builders of being unjust and sent a band of jihadists to burn and destroy the freshly constructed mosque. He
said to his band of hooligans, “Go to this mosque whose owners are unjust
people and destroy and burn it.” (Tabari, vol.ix, p.61). His band of raging
arsonists stealthily entered the bustling mosque and set fire to it when it was
filled with people assembled for the evening prayer. The worshippers dispersed
in utter terror. Allah promptly sent down verse 9:107, 110, justifying
the destruction of opposition mosques. To further validate his gutting of this
mosque, Muhammad concocted the story that he suspected that the builders of the
‘Mosque of Dissent’ were planning to assassinate him.
Then he extolled the virtue of the first
mosque (known as Masjid Takwa) that was built by him at Quba when he
migrated to Medina and where he had asked his followers to pray.
This instruction is written in the Qur’an in verses 9:108-110
Here are those verses that had laid the
foundation of cannibalism in Islam:
And there are those who put up a mosque by way of mischief and infidelity - to
disunite the Believers - and in preparation for one who warred against Allah and
His Messenger aforetime. They will indeed swear that their intention is nothing
but good; But Allah doth declare that they are certainly liars.
Never stand thou forth therein. There is a mosque whose foundation was laid from
the first day on piety; it is more worthy of the standing forth (for prayer)
therein. In it are men who love to be purified; and Allah loveth those who make
Which then is best? - he that layeth his foundation on piety to Allah and His
good pleasure? - or he that layeth his foundation on an undermined sand-cliff
ready to crumble to pieces? and it doth crumble to pieces with him, into the
fire of Hell. And Allah guideth not people that do wrong.
The foundation of those who so build is never free from suspicion and shakiness
in their hearts, until their hearts are cut to pieces. And Allah is All-Knowing,
These verses, when taken in true Islamic spirit, call for
the devastation of rival mosques. The most important question is: which mosques
are genuinely Islamic and which mosques are not so Islamic? Since there is no
central authority in Islam to decide on this, it naturally becomes a moot-point,
to say the least. It is therefore, a free-market in Islam when it comes to
destruction and bloodshed. Thus, Sunnis are free to destroy Shia mosques; the
Shias are permitted to destroy Sunni mosques; both these groups are free to
destroy Ahmedi or Kurdish mosques and so on. Within each group there are
sub-groups and they are also entitled to commit such depravities on other
groups. This is exactly what is going on in almost all Islamic Paradises. In
Iraq, Sunnis are destroying Shia mosques and murdering them. In Pakistan, Sunnis
are killing the Shias and burning their mosques. Then the Shias are avenging
this by destroying Sunni mosques. In Bangladesh, both the Sunnis and the Shias
are occupying Ahmedi mosques and setting them on fire. This musical chair of
mosque-burning and killing is proceeding unabated, each groups claiming they are
the true Muslims! Each group is adamant they are absolutely following the
Qur’an and Sunna (Muhammad’s deeds
and examples), the two principal sources of Islam.
Arguably, we might wonder why such mayhem must be
never-ending when the apologist Muslims, living in infidel lands (especially, in
the USA, the UK, Canada and Australia) are vociferous in claiming ‘Islam is
peaceful’ and Islam could never condone such murder and violence. To solve
this puzzle, we must, at first, find out the sect structure of Islam. Simply
stated, we must be aware of the various sects/classes/denominations of Muslims.
If we do a little Googling we might discover the following main sects or branches of
Hanafi, Shafii, Maliki, Hanbal
Submitters (Qur’an only Muslims)
Islamilia, Zaidiah, Yazdis
There might be many other groups and
sub-groups that we might not be readily known to us.
Even Muhammad had predicted that the
Muslims will be divided into seventy-two sects. Here are a few ahadith
on this from Sunaan Abu Dawud:
be split into 73 sects…40.4579
40, Number 4579:
The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: The Jews
were split up into seventy-one or seventy-two sects; and the Christians were
split up into seventy one or seventy-two sects; and my community will be split
up into seventy-three sects.
